[Zope-CMF] [dev] renaming /Members: a small proposal

This is great but would it be possible to add a bit:
Since the CMF already supports the option of having the user folder
in a container above the CMF itself, it should be possible to specify
that the members_folder could be in the same container as the
acl_users the portal is using. This could be a true/false property as
checkbox wherever the acl_users location gets set. (I have not looked
I have this as an acute problem. We plan to run several CMF instances
in the same server where we'd like users to register only once and
easily cross-post materials.
It would be great not have to customize CMF too much... I am now
planning to uuse acl_users above the CMF instances, but I have to
find a way to get the sites to use a common Members folder.
